CB: How long have you been gigging in stand-up?
SB: I’ve been going for about 2 years now – this is a very boring yet honest answer.
CB: How would you describe your comedy?
SB: I would say it is observational, camp fun. I don’t really take anything I say too seriously.
CB: Which comedians influence your comedy?
SB: Strong, comedic women!
CB: Did you always want to go into comedy?
SB: I always knew that I wanted to entertain but I always thought I would release a pop album, probably as part of a band, going solo by the fourth album
CB: How do you go about writing your material?
SB: I get an idea, improvise it on stage and then strip it back!
CB: Do you gig as a stand-up full time or is it more of a part-time hobby? If so, do you find that your main job influences your material?
SB: I want to play the O2 – so I will gig everywhere and anywhere! But I don’t always get paid
CB: What do you find the most enjoyable and frustrating parts of the amateur comedy circuit?
SB: The most enjoyable thing is being able to try new stuff and bombing and not worrying – the amateur scene is much more forgiving.
I guess the negative is trying not to get sucked in and worrying what everyone else is doing.
CB: What’s your favourite type of audience to perform to?
SB: Gays and girls
CB: Have you been heckled a lot since you’ve started gigging? Do you enjoy being heckled? What’s the best heckle you’ve had?
SB: I don’t really get heckled. We’re all in it together having a good old gossip
CB: What advice would you give to new acts thinking of starting out in comedy?
SB: Don’t worry what everyone else is doing. Think about what you want and aim for the stars!
